On November 24th it's time to turn to Halo 3, where you'll be a part of another 128-player event. Straight shooting is where it's at, and if you can dodge the gunfire and be the last man (or woman!) standing, you'll be taking home a share of the spoils.

Have you got the skill and stamina that it'll take to walk away with the goodies?
